I read an interesting piece this past week over at Mark Galli’s blog where he quotes a portion of a recent Atlantic Monthly article titled: “Marry Him.” He leads with this quotation from the article:
My advice is this: Settle! Thatâ€™s right. Donâ€™t worry about passion or intense connection. Donâ€™t nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling â€œBravo!â€ in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year.
Check out the whole piece and share your thoughts with Mark who writes: “Iâ€™d love to hear how it does strike you. I just donâ€™t know what itâ€™s like to be a 20-or 30-something at the turn of the 21st century…”
